Simple Spoon Bread By: Sue L.
My adult daughter has CF. She loved this spoon bread recipe when she was a little girl. We added lots more butter to each serving in addition to the butter placed on top of the bread prior to broiling. Can also make it a sweet treat and add jam to the top and whipped cream.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In small, but tall bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer on high until very stiff. Set aside.
Whisk yolks until frothy in another bowl. Set aside.
In microwavable bowl, microwave on high, 2 cups of whole milk, for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, until hot.
In saucepan: put cornmeal, salt and pepper; stir while adding the hot milk.
